Sachin

I hope some people I know watched him bat yesterday. If they did, they would shut up about the whole "retirement" thing.

India is still the weaker team in the tournament. Despite Ganguly's success as a bowler at Headingly, he is less than a good fifth bowler, and desperately needs helpful conditions (Toronto!) to be succesful. And Sachin's tendency to leak runs in between good balls is also hurting us. Collingwood on the other hand, has bowled very well, and England have not had to rely too much on Bopara, Pietersen or Mascarenhas. Fielding and catching was still below par, and it was only superior batting and wicket-keeping that won us the match, apart from some probing overs from Zaheer and Powar.

between sourav, sachin and yuvraj, we have the fifth bowler position well covered. sachin should stick to leg-spin and dravid should not wait too long when one of them starts bleeding runs. we haven't attacked collignwood enough. we should step out and loft him.

Prior's been standing up to the stumps pretty well, and that has made Collingwood dowble the bowler he is.

Also, his off-spin is a good reason to have Sehwag back.
